Do you load ammo yourself?
Thinking about something like Henry Golden Boy, but nothing specific in mind, do you have any suggestions? Still gonna have like a month or 2 till I'm going for it, can't bring every monthly payment to the local gun store after allI'm a huge fan of lever guns! Any specific model in mind?
Yeah, that's what I've heard about Henry too. First, I want something a bit lower caliber to get used to lever-rifle shooting, then might check out higher calibers, since I know lotsa folks who hunt deer and even elk with those!Henry's modern lever guns are very nice guns. I don't think you can go wrong there. Nice choice
For a bigger caliber and a lot more in price ($) the newest Winchester '73s and amazingly well built rifles.
Oh yeah I've heard about SASS, gonna check it out later! Still have some time to make up my mind which model I want for a leverThanks Edward!
bobbyjr, check out the basic Henry 22 rifle. They are super sweet little guns and more fun than should be allowed!
I reload too, also for Cowboy Action Shooting. If you think you would be interested in that sport, check out the forums at sassnet.com, great bunch over there.
Definitely a good looking AK, makes me miss my Galil clone.
How many yards out for those tight groups? Nice.View attachment 447100
1873 carbine above.
The flip side to Deacon's comment? And no wrong answers here I think all the current lever guns are truly spectacular.
Of all my lever guns, Browning (made by Miroku) Uberti, Rossi, Winchester, old and new (Miroku). I am really impressed with the '73 carbine. And all of Miroku's aka Browning's offering over the years no matter the configuration.
Ubertis are exceptional as well. This is a Uberti short, deluxe rifle in 32-20.

How many yards out for those tight groups? Nice.
Thanks. Nothing special though. 25 yards from a bench. Open sights and an orange dot that I can barely see at 25 yards!
Same deal here with the fancy '66 short rifle pictured on the rack above and below the photos. Just bigger bullets in a .44
My best 10 shot group from the Uberti '66 @ 25 yards. The gun really can shoot.
